Kanye Arrested After Smashing TMZ Camera

42291006-11100001.jpgRapper Kayne West and his road manager was arrested for vandalism and battery for smashing a TMZ paparazzo’s camera.

Andrew Blankstein caught the story for LAT:

The incident caused delays of about 15 to 20 minutes for passengers waiting to get through security. People waiting in line could see West, who was wearing a hooded sweatshirt, standing at the top of the stairs with about 10 police officers nearby.

Uhm, we’re pretty sure that TMZ and other ‘photographers’ roaming LAX is a security issue. Yes, we all like candid photos of celebrities not looking their best after long flights – what would the world be without those? But we also like people to get the hell out of our way so we can make our flight.
